Google Analytics released. You need an Adwords account. I don’t do ads on my site so not sure will I sign up. It’s very clever of Google, in a way – release really good stats packages that you can use and that they can use to monitor traffic and click-through rates. I’m sure it might actually encourage me too to put ads on my site if I think they could make me some money and Google of course would reap the rewards too.
What is quite interesting too is the use of additional colour (orange) on the Google Analytics webpage. To me this is a first, but maybe I never used AdWords before so I didn’t notice this.
As danger said, you don’t need an adwords account. If you have one and it is in use then you get completely unlimited usage. If you don’t you get close to unlimited usage – see http://www.mneylon.com/blog/archives/2005/11/14/urchin-is-dead-google-analytics-takes-its-place/
@ Michele … correct what you write, i have read the same news.
I’ll check again but last time I logged in it wanted to know my AdWords account before I could progress.
Personally if your site isn’t popular (like mine) adsense is not worth the hassle of putting into place (like on my site) In the past year I’ve made the grand total of $1.17 ~approx.
Although these new stats look fairly spiffy and might encourage me to move off AWStats all together.
Hi can some one tell me if your account number is your user id on adwords and do I just paste it in here
My issue is mine goes 111 -222- 4567 so tehre are lots of digits
